Fiorentina remained sixth, one point out of the Europa League places, although the Tuscan squad can also gain a spot in Europe next season by winning the Europa League.

Last week, Fiorentina drew 1-1 at Dynamo Kiev in the opening leg of the Europa League quarterfinals.

Verona moved up to 14th, 13 points clear of the relegation zone.

Fiorentina forward Khouma Babacar exited with an apparent knee injury seven minutes after coming on in the second half.
